Memorabilia are objects which are kept or collected due to their association with memorable people or events. Whether you’re a collector of items of a particular sporting team, movie star, musician or even a special event, there is a world of memorabilia lovers who collect a range of items to savor history, culture and entertainment.
The word "memorabilia" comes from the Latin term "things worthy of being remembered". As such, memorabilia items have been bought and sold across centuries.
Types of memorabilia can include:
Movie collectibles and memorabilia - including movie props, costumes, limited edition items, box sets and autographs from the stars.
Action figures memorabilia and comics - including TV shows and rare figurines from action shows and popular character series. If these items are autographed by the writers, directors or stars, this is even more valuable.
